Villers-Bretonneux Things to Do: 10 reviews and 15 photos
Photograph a Memorial Inscription or Headstone on behalf of a friend or for your own family.
Having successfully researched the location of the inscription or grave site using the available search facilities the next step is to find the locale and mark the location for navigation purposes. Google Earth may be very helpful in providing locations.
May I suggest you have some double-sided tape (mounting tape) in your kit together with some red silk or paper poppies. Check out the significance of the red poppy.
Bring poppies from home or purchase at Villers-Bretonneux or other Somme locations. I have a couple in my kit whenever I visit France: every village has its memorial to the fallen. Victory Day Ceremonies are held on 8th May.
The poppy can be used as a marker for the particular inscription that you wish to photograph. If there is no facility to help affix the poppy to the stone or metal work, judicious use of the backing tape will do the trick. Don't forget to remove it before going away.
